Happy Monday, EN!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Saturday was very rainy in Northern California, so I spent it inside with a bowl of Count Chocula looking at all of the “Off To The AEC’s!” posts filling my Facebook News Feed.  Sunday was fantastic as I got to haul out my mud-boots and engage in a little puddle-splashing.  Plus there was also that episode of Breaking Bad that I can’t stop thinking about!  I’m having a hard time accepting that there is only one episode left.

Monday News:

Sinead and Manoir de Carneville were were unstoppable all weekend long at Plantation, going clear in Stadium and Cross Country after a well ridden Dressage test.  Cross country day was a bit intense to say the least!  The rain overnight made the water complex at 15AB problematic.  There were several falls, but all horses and riders walked away.  Officials ultimately pulled the jump and adjusted the time allowed. Jennie Brannigan and Cambalda finished second, Erin Sylvester and No Boundaries third.  [More from EN][XC Reporting]

Amy Barrington Update: Amy continues to show improvement after being moved to the Sheperd Center.  Over the weekend Greg reported that Friday was a very good day for Amy.  She was attentive for 3-4 hours, answering yes and no to various questions.  According to the Facebook page chronicling her progress, she remembers that she is married, has a son and that she rides horses, not cats.  She is also smiling at family that has come to visit.  [Amy Barrington Recovery on Facebook]

Proposed rule changes may have you scooping poop when trail riding on New Hampshire public lands The State Department of Resources and Economic Development will hold several public hearings next month.  The impact this kind of rule would have is huge.  I’m generally not a doom-speaker, but this sort of thing always makes me nervous, even when it’s on the other side of the country.  [Valley News]
